A politics-free holiday

Amazing! No one brought up politics in any confrontational way over Thanksgiving.

My family is made up of Right-Statists, Left-Statists, virtual world dwellers, and me. The Right-Statists and Left-Statists never mentioned politics to each other in my presence. Neither side tried to get me to take a side because they didn't talk politics.

The biggest surprise is that for the first time in years, I didn't hear the Left-Statists insert snide comments about Trump into every conversation, even those which had nothing whatsoever to do with him. That's a miracle. And a welcome change.

Maybe it is better to just give the loudest complainers what they want.

From now on, instead of the election automatically going to whoever cheats the hardest, it will go to whoever makes the biggest threats of what they'll do if they don't get what they want.

The LP is still out of luck in this new paradigm as long as they embrace non-aggression. You can't threaten the courts into giving you the office if you won't hold society hostage (whether or not you manufacture v*tes). But the other parties still have an almost even chance (I still believe the Left-Statists have a bit of an advantage).

Politics may have fundamentally changed this year. I wonder where that will lead.
